Of all the crunchy hippy shit that has yet to become popular over here but I found to be relatively common in the UK, I miss refillable soap dispensers the most.
I’m not meaning, the multi-packs you buy in stores to refill something, I am meaning stores where you take your empty containers and get refills of all your liquid soaps (shampoo, hand, dish soap, laundry, whatever), so as not to have to buy MORE plastic shit that isn’t actually recyclable when you look closely at the labeling*.
You’d think US hipsters would be all over that self righteous eco shit but nooo, here I am, trying to do my bit for the planet and the one and only eco-friendly store I have in my whole State is using non recyclable plastics in their packaging while touting how superior their products are over “evil” chemicals. I’d be fucking better off using Dawn dish soap (if I wasn’t allergic to it) cause at least then I could fucking recycle the bottle afterwards. Good grief.
Idk maybe I just lived in hippy central in Scotland, who knows. I did grow up going to Faslane protests as a kid.
Don’t mind me kids. Just having a moment. I didn’t choose the crunchy hippy life, but by god if I have to do it for health reasons I want to damn well do it right.
🌷🍃💫I was trying to send a photo to my friend to show how scruffy my hair was, and how lopsided my glasses are. But now when I go back to them- sure I look awkward but I think I should embrace how not “perfect” I am. I’m quite literally a normal human who isn’t the best looking but I can try to be the best feeling!! Spread the word (He/him)💫🍃🌷
